Overview of the latest EU official documents, publications of the Consortium, and publications from the network regarding the European support for the universalisation of the CTBT and its verification regime

"In order to promote the universalisation of the Treaty, the European Union has carried out a number of demarches in those States whose signing and ratification are indispensable for the entry into force of the Treaty. We have supported the aims of the CTBT by providing substantial voluntary contributions to the activities of the Preparatory Commission of the CTBTO and its Provisional Technical Secretariat through five EU Council Decisions worth of over 15 Million Euros. The latest Council Decision, adopted in November 2012, contributes to these activities 5.2 Million Euros for a period of 24 months. The implementation of this Council Decision is under way."
